It seems like everything is made out of bamboo these days – including the kitchen sink. Alfi's new farmhouse sink is made entirely out of the fast-growing grass, making it a fitting addition to green homes and uniquely styled modern kitchens.
The sink's natural wood construction is certainly eye-catching, and with bamboo's proven record of durability in floors and countertops, it should stand up to some abuse too.
The sink features tough 1-1/8" thick side walls and a completely waterproof non-porous surface. Bamboo may be pretty resilient stuff, but it's still not stainless steel, so this sink does require some minimal maintenance. The manufacturer recommends washing the sink with mild dish soap daily and avoiding contact with harsh cleaning chemicals.
In addition to the double-bowl model pictured, the manufacturer also offers a single-bowl model.
